that's all for now - see you in September!

We have loved our outdoor sessions this term and made lots of lovely memories with our families. We are now closed for the summer and will be back in September. We are moving indoors and will let you knwi where, when we have it all sorted.

Have a lovely summer and see you in the autumn.


Our Drop-in sessions are open to anyone with a pre-school child and you can come more than once a week if you wish. Toys and activities for the children and a hot drink for you!

Please be mindful that some people may still prefer to keep their distance. Masks will need to be worn if entering the church building for the toilet.

We ask for a donation of £1 per session to cover refreshments, please let us know if you prefer to pay for a block by card.
